    Default Detecting user programs

    Is there a way to see if a user trying to view your site has Excell 97 (or better)? I have a section that will only work in IE 4(+) with Excell 97(+) installed on the client&#039s machine. Detecting the IE part is rather simple, but can Excell be detected?<BR><BR>Thanks

    Maybe you could try using Excel as an Object in the *client* code (in the browser)? Try to instantiate the object and then use automation to ask it what version it is?<BR><BR>Never done this, but theoretically it should be possible. No?<BR><BR>
